(hennemusic) Whitesnake leader David Coverdale has named Night Ranger guitarist Joel Hoekstra as the new addition to the band's lineup following the departure of axeman Doug Aldrich earlier this year.

"One of the first, if not the first, guitarists to put his name forward after hearing that Doug Aldrich had left the band, was an exceptionally talented musician whom we had met briefly last year when his band opened for Whitesnake in Arizona," posted Coverdale.

"Everyone was very impressed by him, not only for his ability to play amazing guitar, but, also, his very agreeable personality & he was definitely foremost in our minds when we began to search for Doug's replacement in Whitesnake.

"We jammed together & were mutually impressed enough to ask him to join Whitesnake on the spot. This was May 30th. 2014," he continued. "Joel is currently fulfilling his remaining tour dates with Night Ranger." more on this story
